Browser Use of Access Keys varies:

Internet Explorer 5+: Hold down the Alt key and select the number/letter of the access key, then press ENTER
Internet Explorer 4: Hold down the Alt key and select the number/letter of the access key
Internet Explorer 5+ for Mac: Hold down the Ctrl key and select the number/letter of the access key
Internet Explorer 4.5 for Mac: Access keys are not supported
Firefox or Mozilla on Windows PC - Hold down the ALT key and press the number of the access key
Firefox or Mozilla with Linux - Hold down the ALT key and press the number of the access key
Firefox or Mozilla on a Mac - Hold down the CTRL key and press the number of the access key
Konqueror with Linux Hold down the ' Ctrl ' key and press the number of the Access key
Safari and Omniweb on a Mac Hold down the CTRL key and press the number of the access key
Opera on all systems - Hold down the Shift key and press Escape, release both keys, then press the number of the access key

Note that Opera can be configured to use an easier key system. I use the hash key (#) to activate / deactivate the access keys.
To configure the access trigger key, go to tools - preferences - advanced - shortcuts and then goto Edit Keyboard Setup, choose the heading Application and look for Access Keys in the right hand column.
Having set hash, I then press hash to list the access keys, and then press the key I want.

TECHNICAL NOTE: The little numbers alongside those links with access keys have been inserted into this page using a cascading style sheet (CSS). If you are knowledgeable about the way your browser works, you can insert the code as a User Style, so that all pages with access keys have their links highlighted in this manner.

Using the Opera browser in Linux may be the easiest to amend- just copy the text below (as say accesskey.css) into the Home directory /home/username/.opera/styles/user/accesskey.css (the full stop in front of opera indicates a hidden folder).
For Opera in XP you need to save the file in the User Application Data folder %APPDATA%\Opera\Opera\profile\styles\user\accesskey.css
Then turn on and off using the menu option view / style.
By default you will need to use the menu option view/style/user mode before you can select your style show access keys, but you can make the selection more available easily without having to first select User Mode, by using: menu option view/style/manage modes and putting a tick in the box on the left under Author Mode for My Style Sheet. Keep the other boxes ticked. Another way to reach the same options choice to set your style sheet is menu choice tools/options/preferences/advanced/style options. Other browsers require much more work.

Here is the css code you need - it will only highlight links with access keys, using superscript characters, it will not mark any buttons or input boxes that have access keys. The commented Name: is used by Opera to insert the style into your View/Style menu.
